The tot was born in America and she joined Charlize’s family last month. At the moment it’s not known how old she is, with the Oscar-winning actress yet to release an official statement confirming the news.

Although Charlize doesn’t talk about her personal life in depth, she has discussed her feelings on adoption in the past. Even when she was a little girl she knew it was something she wanted to do.

“My mother found a letter that I wrote when I was eight years old that said, ‘Would you please take me to an orphanage, so that I can go and adopt a baby?’” she laughed in 2012, when quizzed on how long she’d wanted to adopt. “So, I think it’s been a while!

“I always knew I would adopt — always.”
